It's been very clear since the beginning of my search for a quality setup that opinions are all over the place, regarding headphones especially. I'm pretty sure most of it is listening preference, which is often left out of reviews, making it hard to judge the subjectivity of the supplies reviews.
I think I'm a fairly practice guy so I see 6XX as part of my education. I appreciate the help, and am considering the Elex because it's the first set of cans you recommend. I like the Drop stuff because it narrowes the field to a very manageable window of good options. Also, Drop attracts people like you, and there must be a reason for that. If audiophiles and music lovers alike dig the gear on Drop, I'll follow the lead. Feels like insider info in a way. 😎
